Strapi firstname.lastname@example.org is available: admin deployment bug fix and permissions enhancements!
What’s new in alpha.8? 🚀
Alpha.7 was a big step, with the release of the Users & Permissions plugin.
You gave us great feedback about it and reported some issues. That's why email@example.com has been mostly dedicated to fixing bugs.
Deploying an app with the admin panel was complicated and almost impossible in most cases, which was quite annoying. We considered this problem as a priority and decided to entirely reviewed the admin build workflow. This issue has been fixed in firstname.lastname@example.org, so now you can deploy your APIs with confidence. We also took the advantage of these updates to let you host the admin front-end on a different server.
Last but not least, we fixed the issue concerning permissions management.
Give it a try!
